Circus tiger kills eight-year-old girl in China

BEIJING: An eight-year-old Chinese girl was killed by a circus tiger after she slipped into an enclosed “animal training site”, state media said.
The girl died of her injuries in hospital following the attack at Leheledu Amusement Park in the southwestern city of Chongqing, Xinhua reported, citing the park.

She was visiting the circus on Friday night with her relatives when she was attacked, the news agency added.

“A spokesman from the park said they have reached (an) initial agreement on settling the incident with the victim’s family and vowed to beef up security measures,” it said. The incident comes after a zookeeper was killed by a tiger while cleaning out his cage in the financial hub Shanghai last December.
